Postdoctoral Research Associate
This is an opportunity to join a team on a British Academy-funded project to examine the ways in which Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) is resisted in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It will explore how dignity is created by and for women through community history-making through mapping the multiple ways that women have exercised various types of individual, collective and creative resistance to cope with VAWG over time.

This will involve liaising with the partner organisations, People’s Palace Projects (London) and Redes da Maré (Rio de Janeiro) and field research assistants (Rio de Janeiro). The role will also entail writing research reports drawing on a range of interview materials as well other research outputs.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 18 months.
